British sample-wizards The Go! Team just released a new album, Semicircle, a couple of months back in January via Memphis Industries, but now they’ve already shared a new single, “The Only Thing New is U Finding Out About It.” Listen to it below, followed by the band’s upcoming U.S. tour dates, which start this weekend. The band has also announced that they will perform on TruTV’s The Chris Gethard Show on April 10.

The Go! Team’s leader Ian Parton had this to say about the song in a press release: “‘The Only Thing New is U Finding Out About It’ is an expansion of an idea from a remix I did years ago. It builds around a looping Steve Reich-esque kalimba line, with a syncopated steel drum response jumping in the gaps, and by the end a full-on choir have joined in this weird math rock African/Asian hybrid thing. The title is inspired by a Mike Watt quote - and a sentiment I’m into: that it’s up to you to go out and track down the good shit that’s out there…”

Previously The Go! Team shared Semicircle‘s first single, “Semicircle Song,” as well as “Mayday” and “All the Way Live,” and a video for “Mayday.”

Semicircle features two key members of the original live band lineup that toured the band’s acclaimed debut album, 2004’s Thunder, Lightning, Strike. Ian Parton is the main creative force behind the band, but brought back guitarist Sam Dook and rapper Ninja for Semicircle.

The band’s last album was 2015’s The Scene Between, which was essentially an Ian Parton solo project. A previous press release laid out the lineup for Semicircle: “Semicircle finds Parton collaborating with current live players Simone Odaranile (drums) and Angela ‘Maki’ Won-Yin Mak (vocals), as well as two original members, guitarist Sam Dook and rapper Ninja. Annelotte de Graaf (aka Amber Arcades), previous collaborator Julie Margat (aka Lispector), and a crew of unexpected musicians feature throughout.”

Semicircle also features the Detroit Youth Choir. The album comes in various formats, including a limited edition neon pink vinyl LP, a cassette, limited edition signed screen-printed test pressing, CD, and download.
